CHANGE

Choices create it

Happenings cause it

Anxiety is often its result

No one is immune to it

Good often comes from it

Everyone will experience it

Sudden Change

Thoughts rolling around wildly

Chaos replaces status quo

Apple cart upset

Senryu

“upset the apple cart” meaning: wreck an advantageous project or disturb the status quo.

The use of a cart piled high with apples as a metaphor for a satisfactory but possibly precarious state of affairs is recorded in various expressions from the late 18th century onwards.

Dorian

Colorful paint swirls on paper

Prayers out sent to cover

Those its fury hath touched

Prayers sent up to gather

And bring winds of change

Turning the path’s course

To remain at sea

Syllabic Verse

Prayers for those in the Bahamas who are facing the destruction of Dorian’s wrath at this time.

Praying it’s fury will be lessened and it’s path turned out to sea so it will not make landfall anywhere else.

Just One Word

Blackboard, open journal, flowers, message Write! It all begins with one word

Today I wrote a word

Just one short word

It sat there awhile

All alone it sat

Until inspiration

Caused it to grow

And multiply itself

Creating a story

Of three thousand words

The power of pen

And inspiration

Can change the world

Syllabic Verse

The time has come

May’s skirts rustle as she tiptoes

Through the dancing tulips 

Sowing seeds of florescence

Carpeting the world with flowers
